A cambodian girl, maybe six or seven, is adopted by an American family. She has to learn how to cope with being in a new country. I remember a few scenes, but not the name. In one scene, she loses her adoptive mother's wedding ring down the sink and panics. In another, towards the end of the movie, she's in a spelling bee.
Does anybody have any idea what it is? Sorry I don't have more information, but it's been maybe 15 years since I saw it!
